But let’s look at what the differences between the two are and what they really do.
What is Java?
Java is a programming language that was released in 1995 by Sun Microsystems. Since then, it has become an instrumental feature in most technology. One of its biggest benefits is its stable structure and reliability. Some features of Java include:
- Used in Android and general mobile app development
- Supports scientific computing and large analytical data
Advantages of Java
- It allows for detailed data reports to be generated.
- There is a large community of dedicated and supportive developers backing it up.
- It’s multithreaded, lets developers reuse code, and has helpful third-party libraries for information.
Disadvantages of Java
- Its JIT (Just In Time) compiler makes it slower.
- The complexity of the language means more money is charged to use its software.
- It isn’t compatible with garbage collection.
- Deep integration with HTML and Java
- Compatible across various platforms
- It’s supported by Microsoft.
- It can be run on all browsers with Java compatibility.
- Elements like interfaces and classes are supported within it.
- It isn’t as popular as Java and doesn’t have significant backing by a large community.
- It won’t work with multithreading or with multiprocessors.
